Call for CRAFT ARTISTS – get involved in American Craft Week:
Register early and join the celebration!
This year's American Craft Week celebration is to be held October 7-16, 2011, and will bring together individuals, small businesses and organizations from all fifty states in recognition of the countless ways handmade objects enrich our daily lives and contribute to our national aesthetic and economy.
You are invited to be part of American Craft Week. If you create, sell, display, promote, collect or just plain love American craft, please join the celebration. Click on Participants/Events at www.americancraftweek.com to find a listing of what's happening by state. If you would like to become a participant and host your own event, click on the "Get Involved" tab at the website to sign up. It can cost as little as $25 and gives your event national exposure.
Last year, North Carolina had the most registered participants nationwide! Here in Western North Carolina we are working hard to do more in 2011. For inclusion of your event in printed material such as rack cards, there will be an additional nominal fee and a May 31, 2011 deadline for information. Inclusion in web-based publicity is on-going; however you must register through the American Craft Week website first. Contact Sherry Masters at Grovewood Gallery for more information on WNC events.
